    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people, good products, lots of opportunity to travel or work in diverse areas. Well structured organisation lots of interesting and challenging work. Ericsson has a great name and a great reputation, people are proud to work for ericsson

    Cons

    Ericsson compete in a low margin, competitive business, things can be very tight, Ericsson does not pay well but benefits are reasonably good. I've sensed a bit of a blame culture in some quarters, things can be very political

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I sense a lot of fear in local senior management - fear of loosing work, loosing control and becoming uncompetitive. I think they should show more courage, vision and confidence and more appreciation for a great bunch of employees.

    Current Employee - Service Engineer  in  Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Current Employee - Service Engineer in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    I have been working at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Travel, money is good if you are willing to travel (tax-free expenses), relaxed atmosphere, a chance to learn a lot.

    Cons

    Experience is not valued at all. Competance development process for new employees is poor, they just send them away on a project on their own without any proper hands-on training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the employees you know your products inside out, it can take years; and simply replacing every unhappy employee with a graduate who doesn't know anything has a negative impact on customer relations when projects are not being delivered with quality and in time.

    I worked at Ericsson-Worldwide full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, some nice travel, Interesting work and easy to move around within the company.

    Cons

    Bad pay grades and a large amount of travel was required to produce an average income.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even give employees slight increases instead of allowing people leaving, by setting pay freezes the company is flushing out their strong knowledge base over time.
